Income Protection

Given that our income is generally seen as our biggest asset, it is extremely important that this asset is protected. 

Have you ever wondered how you will be able to keep up with regular payments — including the mortgage, bills, childcare, food, entertainment, and transport — if you get injured or lose your job?

Income Protection is designed to address just this kind of thing: to replace some or most of your income in the event you are made redundant or unable to work.

It may be due to any of the following:

  • Sickness or injury
  • Illness (including some mental illnesses)
  • Losing your job or being fired
  • Losing your business


While some people believe that income protection is only necessary when you’re a high income earner, the reality is that income protection is a majorly underrated safeguard for any type of income earner.

Income Protection enables you to insure a maximum of 75% of your regular personal exertion income (including salary sacrificed superannuation contributions) against sickness or injury that prevents you from carrying out your work. 

Much in the same way that you would receive your regular payments from work, your insurance cover would ensure you get regular payments until you’re well again so that you’re able to cover all your usual expenses. This is especially important if you have mortgage repayments or a family who depends on you as their primary source of income support.

An important consideration when choosing income protection insurance is the waiting period before benefits are paid out. A short waiting period is generally designed to suit those who could be in financial difficulties very quickly if their income stream stops. 

Benefit payments will normally continue until you are able to return to work, subject to the maximum benefit periods. Typical benefit periods range from 1 year, 2 years, 5 years, to age 55, to age 60, to age 65.

Generally, premiums for this form of cover are able to be claimed as a Tax Deduction, however any insurance proceeds paid are subject to income tax. (You should consult your Accountant for formal confirmation.)

As all policies have key exclusions, it’s important to know what you’re getting (and not getting) as part of your premium.

Income protection is tailored to suit you and your situation. As such, there are many great options to choose from, but the complexity and range of products is why insurance brokers are often sought to provide clarification and guidance. You’ll want to make sure you’re not setting the bar for cover too low, while not paying too much on your premiums.

“Justin at CorpSure has been doing my business insurance for 2 years. In business you need good people around you (they aren’t easy to find!), after my first discussion with Justin about my needs he ticked all the boxes. Its often the small things that count, Justin recently talked me through an insurance matter as I needed to know how it could play out. It wasn’t just the advice that left a good impression, it was the fact there was somebody who was able to take my call and resolve my issue as fast as it had presented.”
